Orgain, makers of doctor-developed, high-quality nutritional products, today announced that founder Dr. Andrew Abraham is a finalist for the EY Entrepreneur of the Year 2016 Awards in Orange County, California. The awards, now in their 30th year, recognize best-in-class entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance, and personal commitment to their businesses and communities.
“Orgain is my life’s work and I am so honored and humbled by this acknowledgment,” says company founder, physician and cancer survivor, Andrew Abraham, MD. “I’m proud that Orgain is supporting thousands of people both in their battles with illness, as well as in maintaining optimal good health. Our team continues to innovate and make better-quality products that provide more energy and improved health, and I am grateful that we are able to make a positive difference in people’s lives.”
During his treatment for a rare form of cancer during his teen years, Andrew Abraham did intensive research on nutrition and began searching for healthy nutritional products made with real food and organic ingredients to fuel his recovery. Unable to find anything that met his standards, he made organic nutritional shakes at home, and saw a meaningful improvement in how he felt. This experience inspired Dr. Abraham, after medical school and during his residency, to start Orgain in order to provide the same high quality organic nourishment to so many others, whether fighting an illness or in search of high-quality nutrition for a healthy lifestyle. Since its inception in 2008, Orgain’s portfolio has grown from the original ready-to-drink nutritional shakes to include a wide assortment of organic nutritional products, including vegan and kids shakes, organic plant-based protein powder and protein-fortified almond milk.
Dr. Abraham was selected as a finalist by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced at a special gala event on June 17, 2016 at the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, California.
